I am honored to have been elected as the newest President of your Alumni Association, ANAAA. My goal as President is to keep our Association and the Academy moving forward, while preserving and honoring our rich history and tradition.
Our Association will be working closely with the Board of Trustees and Office of Advancement to achieve the three major goals outlined below. We are committed to involving all Alumni who are interested in participating in these projects. If you’d like to join us, please don’t hesitate to contact me.
1. Preserving our History
We have formed an ANA Historical Committee led by Brad Larsen ’72. The Committee is working to preserve and archive historical artifacts, photographs, and documents so that they’re intact and easily accessible for future generations. This is a long-term, ongoing project to preserve our history, and an essential project that will maintain our legacy.
2. Increasing Outreach
Your Alumni Association is committed to keeping you informed of projects, networking opportunities, and Academy events. We’ve also taken ownership of the Golden A Award, and will work with you to determine future recipients of the honor. We are in the process of developing new criteria for the award, and will share it with you as soon as it’s finalized.
3. Providing Mentorship to Current Cadets
Our experiences at the Academy and afterward have shaped us into the men we’ve become, and we can and should share our lessons learned with today’s Cadets. The Alumni Association is working to develop an Ambassador program that will allow Alumni to serve as mentors to current Cadets. This is an ideal way to bridge the gap between the past and present, shaping future generations of ANA Alumni.
There are many ways to get involved with your Alumni Association, and I encourage you to do so. Whether you’re interested in participating on a committee, volunteering your time on campus, or simply staying in touch with us, we want to hear from you. You are always welcome to contact me directly, and I look forward to hearing from you.
Warrior Proud! Warrior Strong!

Would You Like to be a Class Agent?
We are always happy to hear from you and to reconnect you with your friends from school.
We are always working to track down Alumni we haven’t heard from in years, and have recently reconnected with over 1300 Academy Alumni.
Are you interested in helping us find even more?
You can do so by becoming a Class Agent. As an Agent, you will be the point of contact between your class and the Academy. You’ll help us improve communications to Alumni and give us your input on special events like Alumni Weekend.
We welcome all who are interested to get involved, and we look forward to hearing from you!
